STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
This is a substantial Gevrey Chambertin domaine of 12 hectares encompasses some of the finest premiers and grands crus in the village. Previously Chantal Tortochot’s father Gabriel sold most of his fruit to the famous Beaune négociant, Joseph Drouhin. Since taking over in 2001 Chantal has been carefully and surely building the domaine’s name and reputation around the world. In 2013 the estate became organically certified. Chantal favours early bottling to capture the fruit purity.
From three separate lieux dits in Morey St Denis: Aux Chesseaux, Clos des Ormes and Les Crais. A very approachable style, with soft succulent fruit characters, redolent of plums, sloes and damson. The tannins are beautifully ripe and have a velvet texture, delivering a wine with youthful approachability. Excellent value.
Aged 12-18 months French oak.
